July 12th Protest rally against abortion regulations in HB2 and SB1.

Last week the Texas Senate held a hearing on the progress being made in women’s health services. Touting an increase in funding for women’s health, the message was that we’re doing great.

But something was left off the agenda -- the impact of last year’s cumbersome regulations on abortion clinics.

Where is Texas in providing health services to women, and what extreme measures are some women taking to avoid the new Texas laws?

Guests:

  • Carolyn Jones, contributing writer for the Texas Observer
  • Amanda Stevenson – is a graduate student researcher assessing the impact of state reproductive health legislation for the Texas Policy Evaluation Project
